I am thankful for support socks. My right ankle was particularly swollen today–by the time I got out of the shower, it had swollen to the size it occasionally gets by the end of the day and that cam be hugely painful. The support socks allowed me to stand at work all day relatively pain free.
That makes a major difference in my attitude. Acute pain changes your attitude. Chronic pain changes your personality.
And addiction to pain meds .ruins your weekend. So glad the support socks prevent the pain soothe meds ain’t needed.
